A Busy Week

Mary, now an empty nester, with  the silk quilt she made for her younger son.
Another quilt of hers hangs on the wall behind.
Quilters's Guild MLC workshop in the Kingston Barn

It was Usual Suspects on Monday (but I didn't take any pictures), then The Guild Modern Log Cabin on Wednesday which Judi led with  Heather Hasthorpe's notes for the MQG as a starting point, Quay Quilters at night (where most photos didn't come out) and on Friday one of the Queen Beez occasional get togethers. On Saturday it was the Region 2 Guild committee meeting (but definitely no pictures there). Judi and I are on Hever raffle quilt duty so friends and helpers might want to avoid us for the next few months.

Mavis's Bonnies quilt from last year - a very partial view

At Queen Beez - Mary's tree skirt, a pattern she shared with us.

Christine who sometimes travels down from London to join us
with her hexagon project.


Maggie's tree skirt is made with woolies and will have
appliqued reindeer in the large squares,

Back from my Lake District trip so I am catching up as internet connection was very limited so I gave up trying! Can't sleep tonight, unusual for me so I am pleased to while away some time seeing some ofl the lovely things I missed in blogland.
Good that you have certainly dropped right back into the swing of things since your US visit and there have been treasures to share. Thank you. Love all the makes from your get together.
I am trying to finish off a few items before my trip to Germany to see family (and the bonus...Christmas markets)..
The Autumn colours were still glorious around Ambleside and Windermere area especially when the low Winter sun blessed us for a few days before the stormy weather set in.

I wish I had seen those tree skirts before making one for my elder daughter. You really get plenty of time with quilty friends.
